Isaiah 42:13-14

Context

42:13 The Lord emerges like a hero,

like a warrior he inspires himself for battle; 1 

he shouts, yes, he yells,

he shows his enemies his power. 2 

42:14 “I have been inactive 3  for a long time;

I kept quiet and held back.

Like a woman in labor I groan;

I pant and gasp. 4 

1 tn Heb “like a man of war he stirs up zeal” (NIV similar).

2 tn Or perhaps, “he triumphs over his enemies” (cf. NIV); NLT “will crush all his enemies.”

3 tn Heb “silent” (so NASB, NIV, TEV, NLT); CEV “have held my temper.”

4 sn The imagery depicts the Lord as a warrior who is eager to fight and can no longer hold himself back from the attack.
